The Annual General Meeting of Woburn & Wavendon FC will be held virtually using Microsoft Teams on Monday 12th October 2020 at 7.30pm.

We’d like to welcome all members to attend the meeting, which can be done using the following link on the day.

Support for #Shay21

Shayen Patel had a tremendous influence on those around him with many of his friends and family reaching out to people he liked and supported (like KSI earlier this week – below) to share a message in memory of Shay.

Shay was a huge Chelsea FC supporter and with their summer signing of Ben Chilwell, who started his grassroots journey with Woburn & Wavendon FC, it felt fitting that we reached out to him and ask if he could send us a video to pass on to Shay’s family and friend after announcing his Chelsea FC shirt number as 21, the same number Shay wore every week!

This weekend (19th/20th) all of our WWFC teams alongs with teams playing in the MKDDL and BYSL will take the time to applaud before kick off in memory of Shay and Dean Mandabva, a Moretonville JFC who sadly passed away earlier this month after also bravely battling cancer.

At such sad times, It’s amazing to see the influence and support the footballing community offers to each other.

Shay’s friends also reached out to K.S.I, who fulfilled Shayan’s wish of having him appear in one of his video’s as he was a huge fan having watched all his videos and seeing him perform live.

After a brave battle for the last 2 years, it’s with great sadness that we announce the loss of Shayen Patel, a Woburn & Wavendon FC U14s player and friend to many, and now a WWFC angel who will forever watch over our games.

Shay was a brave ‘lion’ who was passionate about football and supported so many players in the team with his kindness and laughter as he regarded everyone as a friend. We’re extremely proud to be able to say that such kind, caring and devoted boy wore our club badge every week throughout his footballing steps, even taking to the pitch last year to play with his friends whilst going through treatment for a brain tumour (we have a video of him scoring during this game!).  

Through his battle, Shay would always look to be positive for the people around him, as well as consider others that he didn’t know but wanted to help as he was looking to set up a charity to help families going through a child’s cancer diagnosis. Shay’s parents will carry this on for him and have set up a memorial fund that will be used for the charity.

Shay’s Memorial Fund

Shay’s family will be celebrating his life tomorrow (Saturday 12th September) as they lay him to rest and from everyone at Woburn & Wavendon FC, we send our love and thoughts to all of his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time.

Club Statement: COVID-19

As a club, we believe sport and exercise is important, however the health and safety of our members will always be a priority, so we are suspending all training going forward with immediate effect and will be reviewing this regularly in line with the additional information that will be made available to us in the coming days/weeks.

We appreciate there may be questions regarding the remainder of the season (matches/training/tournament) and will update you as soon as we can. In the meantime we hope that you remain safe and healthy during these unprecedented times.

We’d like to thank you for your understanding and support.

Lioness Ladies County Cup Final Postponed.

Following Bedfordshire FAs announcement yesterday that all League and County Cup games will be suspended for the next 2 weeks; we’d like to advise that the Women’s County Cup final tomorrow (15/3/20), which features our Lioness Ladies, has been postponed.

We’ll keep you all updated and hope that everyone can make the event when it’s rearranged.

We’re a #FemaleFriendlyClub!

We were fortunate enough to be invited by the FA to attend the #FemaleFriendlyClubs Workshop this evening, which is making it’s way around the country as it is being delivered to the county FAs (I believe we were stop 23 of 39!)!

A great experience and recognition for the club as we had the opportunity to talk to other clubs that are developing and delivering a female football offering. We were also asked to attend and be ‘the club under the spot light’ as we shared our club’s journey with the rest of the attendees and hosted a ‘questions and answers’ session.

As a club we are extremely proud of our Lionesses football and would like to thank Bedfordshire FA, our members and partners for all of the support we receive to make it happen!
